Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I have been using craigslist for about two weeks now. From it I got five responses. I now have 2 new mowing customers, one is a biweekly four property customer from a property management firm and other is a weekly. It seems to be working well for me. I mean, what the hay, it is FREE advertising. I strongly recommend it.

Clean Lawn

I used craiglist and get roughly 10 e-mails calls a week. Now not every one of them works out to be a yearly contract but last week I got a $55.00 job and is considering a yearly contract, asked to bid on two property mangers rental properties (11 total and then his personal lawn. that was on thursday and I faxed it on friday) and the week before that I got one yearly contract $65.00 per visit/$7.00 doggie clean-up (see 2 new doggie clean ups this month)/and weed spray killing with fall lawn clean-up, seeding, aeration and fertilizer and another renter paid for us to come and do hourly work and is now signing a bimothly contract since we are headed into that time of year, and one 1 time a month contract.
But every new call that I asked, including the Merchants bid all said they saw us on craigslist. I still have not heard anything from Merchants by the way but that was my first commercial bid so I wasn't holding my breath. Today I got an e-mail regarding landscaping and someone who wants to sell their 9 year old lawn and landscaping business (again different person).
So overall I would say it has been better for CleanLawn than the fliers I had professionally made up with a sign a yearly contract and get your fourth lawn care visit for free a bust compaired to it.
Hope this is helful.
Now, its time for me to spend some time and research on pricing for fall clean-up, aeration, grass seeding and fertilizer. So, if any professionals want to throw their pricing suggestions out I am sure I am not the only one interested in the information.
